Re: i can't get rid of the margins when i print something

I'm guess you are printing from MS Word? Click File the "Page Setup" Click the layout tab the far right then go to the bottom and click borders and select the NONE option. You should have your borders removed!! =) That is if that is the type of border you are talking about.

Why doesn't everything shown in preview appear on the printed page?

You need to look at your margins. Many times the screen preview extends beyond the margins. Many devices depending upon your print driver will not always print the same as on the screen. Change your margins to .5" on the document and then check the print. If you live in Southeast Florida Advanced business computers is a great source for help.

I am a teacher. We have Dell computers with windows 7 on them. Recently our school district downloaded Microsoft Office 10. Since the new microsoft office, my xerox phaser 8500 is printing strange. ...

Hi fsaltzman,

You need to check the margin settings in the print preview option, make sure you decrease the margins that are set by default and try printing a test page , this should work fine.

On the File menu, you need to click Page Setup, and then click the Margins tab.
Here you can adjust the margins as per your convenience.

To View page margins :-
  1. You need to go on the Tools menu, select Options, and then select the View tab.
  2. Under Print and Web Layout options, select the Text boundaries check box.

The page margins appear in your document as dotted lines.

You can use these dotted lines to correct your margins so that your student's assignments are not cut off and there is no large margin as you have mentioned in your question.

You can view page margins in either Print Layout or Web Layout view only, and they do not appear on the printed page.

Hope this helps

It will not print Word documents. it pulls a blank piece of paper through. It will print in notepad

there is something wrong with your Word printer setup. Go to Word, then from the File menu select the Print option and when the print window opens see if the HP deskjet is selected as default printer. Then, in the upper right quadrant theres a button called Advanced Settings, or Prefferences (depending on your Word version). Click that button and check to see if the HP printer is set as On Line, and is set to print odd and even pages. Also, check the margins of the paper. Ink Jet printers cant print over the full page, there's always a need of some margin on each side of the paper, so you'll need to set the margins from all sides on at least 0.5 inches

Printing 2 and runs off page

check your print settings before you print anything. the left margin might be from the ink cartridge not going all the way over or it could be blocked by something. have you tried printing on just the internet alone? or have you tried printing on wordpad too?

Printing Phaser 8550

that is a part of that printer design. Something sadly you can not get rid of. Believe me, I have tried, and Xerox engineering told me that is part of how the machine is supposed to work. Wish we could eliminate that.

Huge Margin with Kyocera FS 1000+

If the FS-1000 prints too far down the page or leave too much top margin or leaves a gap at the top of the page etc (<- for google searches). This is a problem with the felt pads on the three solenoids/clutch electro magnets that are under the right panel (2 under the engine/button board, 1 under the inner plastic cover, sometimes 4 in total on other kyocera printers). They get compressed over time meaning the metal leavers come into contact with the solenoid meaning they are released too slowly. Simply replace the felt pads with .5mm cardboard or another non-sticky non-metallic material. Too thick and it prints too far up the page.

Margin problem

Won't be the printer so I guess that leaves software or printer driver settings or the actual document setup.

Margin problem???

I can just guess it has to do with the paper being fed. either you have the paper wrong or the paper settings to a different size then the actual dimensions of your print material.
